Code of Maryland Regulations
Chapter 09.12.52 - Industrialized Buildings and Manufactured Homes - Enforcement in Localities

Universal Citation: MD Code Reg Enforcement in Localities

A. Reports to the Secretary. Each governmental jurisdiction shall furnish monthly notice to the Department, on forms supplied by the Department, of each industrialized building being erected or installed in its jurisdiction, giving the State insignia number, type or model, manufacturer's name, and any other data needed to properly identify each unit. In lieu of these reports, the jurisdiction may complete and forward the location report form shipped with each unit. Manufacturers shall also furnish this same information to the Department on a monthly basis, indicating the destination of all units shipped for erection or installation in the State. These reports shall be submitted no later than the 10th day of the following month.

B. Unlabelled Industrialized Building Units. Any industrialized building which does not carry the insignia of the Department, but which by reason of date of manufacture, may lawfully be sold or installed, is subject to the control of the local governing body within whose jurisdiction it is to be installed. When this building is offered for sale, the person to whom it is offered shall be specifically advised in writing by the seller or manufacturer that the building does not carry State certification and, therefore, is subject to local building code requirements.

C. Local Enforcement Requirements. In addition to the matters reserved to city and county government by Public Safety Article, ยง 12-303, Annotated Code of Maryland, the local enforcement agency shall verify that the unit bears the required insignia and inspect the unit for damage in transit. Local enforcement agencies shall be responsible for inspecting all the work to be done at site, including, but not limited to the installation, erection, foundation, site work, and utilities connections, for compliance with the terms of certification and applicable law. If local enforcement agencies find violations of the Department's requirements, either due to transit damage or improper construction in the factory, they shall forward notice of these violations to the Department. If violations or defects are created by the on-site builder, the local enforcement agency is responsible for insuring that the unit is brought back into compliance, or for bringing the violation to the attention of the Department.
